■ EGYPT: Cairo's Top Aviation to roll out iPort's Departure Control System across Egypt.

Cairo-based Top Aviation has become the latest ground handling services provider to deploy the web-based iPort airline departure control system (DCS) following the signing of a multi-year agreement.

Top Aviation will initially use iPort DCS to support 15 airline customers at eight airports throughout Egypt in a bid to transform passenger check-in, boarding and aircraft load control processes.
While working with the iPort DCS on behalf of a major European airline, we were able to see the benefits it brought to our operations, and we’re eager to put those great benefits to work for our clients and their customers across Egypt,” said Mohamed Aziz, general manager, Top Aviation.
The benefits to Top Aviation are that iPort:
  • enables all DCS functions to be easily accessed and managed by staff anywhere in the world and is fully accessible from desktop to mobile devices.
  • accelerates passenger check-in through its graphical user interface (GUI) – reducing keystrokes, eliminating errors, and cutting customer wait times, all resulting in greater operational efficiency.
  • allows flight dispatchers to make real-time adjustments to airplane load planning as passengers check-in, using simple-to-use, drag-and-drop processes.
  • integrates with the Travelport E-Ticket Interchange and Travelport Check-in Interchange to provide immediate access to interline and through check-in partners, including airlines and ground handling agents worldwide.
iPort is a web based application suite, created and provided by Res2, in association with Travelport.
